In September, world leaders will gather in New York for the United Nations Summit to Adopt the Post-2015 Development Agenda, where they will set the course for tackling the world’s social, environmental, and economic challenges in the years to come. What does philanthropy bring to this agenda and what role can it play in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)?

Join a growing group of social justice leaders – government negotiators, representatives of UN agencies and diplomatic missions, and leaders from philanthropy, civil society, and business – who share a common interest in answering these urgent questions and fully engaging the philanthropic sector. The programme will feature four thematic roundtables, designed around specific SDGs: education; employment; climate change; urban sustainability and inequality.
